Our great town of Glendale, Arizona has the charm of a small town with all the amenities of a big city. Sunshine and blue skies are almost a daily attraction and warm winter days are perfect for outdoor activities. Our football stadium hosted Super Bowls 2008 and 2015 and will host again on February 12, 2023. The NCAA Final Four 2017 also took place in our town. State Farm Stadium and Gila River Hockey Arena, alongside Westgate City Center, are a hub of sports, entertainment, shopping and dining.
